Familial Mediterranean Fever (FMF) is an autosomal recessive inherited disease occurring with higher incidence among the population in the eastern Mediterranean region. Most of the patients experience their first bouts of fever in early childhood and adolescence. It is a chronic disease which is characterised by recurrent bouts of fever accompanied by abdominal, chest, or joint pain. Kidney function impairment can be observed in the late phase of the disease due to high protein deposits.
